Solar Richmond's Current Work Featured in Video at Local Event
Tuesday, 30 April 2013 00:00
Solar Richmond (SR) was featured in this short video at a local event Chevron held today to recognize the six recipients of a 2011 Chevron grant award. The grant allowed for 25 participants to complete SR's commercial solar training program, for 16 graduates to receive jobs through SR's staffing services. Four individuals from the program were also recruited for SR's worker-owned cooperative solar company, Pamoja Energy Solutions, and we hope to bring 3-4 more individuals on before the end of the year. The following video highlights the very recent murder of graduate Dimarea Young, which reminds us all of the dire importance of this work for transformative change.

Solar Richmond was devastated to lose one of our own last week. One of our recent graduates, Dimarea Young, was murdered less than a block from the Solar Richmond office last Tuesday.
A top student in the Brighter Futures Program, which offers a combination of education, mindfulness training, and meaningful work to young adults in Richmond, Dimarea completed the program in June of last year and was working towards his own brighter future.
